course contents

The course focuses on the basic principles of economics with regards to restructuring, crisis management and reorganization, which serve the graduates as a basis for consolidating advanced and specific aspects in the further course of their studies. Accordingly, an initial classification of the topics restructuring, crisis management and reorganization in the corporate life cycle is made as well as key terms are defined.
A wide range of crisis types are presented and their development, causes and symptoms are discussed. Subsequently, the course shows what measures can be taken in an acute crisis, how the reorganization processes works and what questions are in the focus. Measures and methods for the early discovery of a crisis and how to prevent it are presented in the context of the topics ”strategic foresight” and “insolvency prophylaxis”.
The implementation of any restructuring or reorganization concept requires appropriate cash, which is hardly or not available, especially in crisis situations. For this reason, the specifics of financing distressed companies as well as the possibilities of raising capital for the restructuring and reorganization process will be discussed
